Characteristics of SCADA-Based System

The supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) based system is characterized by its operation at very large distances and in most cases by real time operation. SCADA facilitate operation in areas where human access is difficult or impossible. The basic components of the SCADA are Sensors, Transducers and Actuators. Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) conveys signals from sensors and transducers through leased telephone lines, data communication network, or through satellite communication to Master Terminal Unit (MTU): host computer or server.

SCADA-based systems are used in diverse areas such as
  1. 1.

    Oil and Gas Production Facilities;

  2. 2.

    Pipelines for Gas, Oil, Chemical or Water;

  3. 3.

    Waste Water Collection and Treatment;

  4. 4.

    Potable Water Treatment and Distribution;

  5. 5.

    Electrical Transmission System;

  6. 6.

    Large Communication System;

  7. 7.

    Irrigation System;

  8. 8.
